Hi, This is the first time, so i hope i have posted the right place.. Got an issue with a 2003 server that is non-responsive and does'nt accept login throught ts. When you try you get only the gray login screen/window but the login prompt is not presented. I know what the reason is that triggered this situation - so this is not virus/security related issue. Everything is "down" - web, ftp, email is not responding anymore except for pop3. I desperately need to reboot this machine which is inlocated in Denmark, my location is Sweden. So it is not on intranet/LAN or something like that = no net bios. I have tried to connect through: TS - fails - TS responds on the initial start - the ts windows pops up - but it hang s with the gray screen and no credential prompt is presented vpn ( to execute shutdown.exe throught the network) - failed: it the vpn trying to connect just hangs tsshutdn ( tsshutdn.exe 60 /reboot /server:XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX /delay:90 /v - fails - error specific: "Error when opening connection to the terminal server, error 1744:RPC-server not available" ( xxx.xxx.=ip adress, removed for security reasons) So what options do i have? Is the any tool that i can use to force the reboot - dirty/hard reboot is not really an option as i have the option to just "walk over to the server" physically and turn it off by the power button. Thanks a lot in advance for your responses!

No - because the responsible person is in egypt for the moment. :-( So I'm looking far an alternative way - even if the option is to "hack" my own server. But i hope i don't have to. Since i have credentials there is no real "hack" in it. Anyway i'm running out of options here. Is there some other tool i could use than the mentioned above that i have already tried?
